    Kaywoodie Regent #69 (Pic Heavy!)

    This is my 16th Kaywoodie Regent, I'm still working on collecting all the shapes! This one wasn't that bad of a cleanup/fix. Cheers!

    Nicely done! I can never quite bring myself to clip off a Kaywoodie stinger, but for smoking purposes I'd consider it a stroke of good luck if someone else had done it for me (notwithstanding what that might mean in terms of collectibility). By the way, how did you start collecting Regents? Were you a Kaywoodie fan first, or was it the cumberland stems that first drew you in?

    Very nicely done indeed, Kaitlyn! I especially like the way that you cleaned that old bowl up.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Kaitlyn, nice looking Pot. Gotta love those cumberland/brindle stems! I'm sure it's going to be a fine smoker.

    Great combo on the stem and grain. Excellent clean up as well. Good luck with collecting the rest of the shapes.

    Cracking job! I'd say you chose a perfect line of pipes to collect with the regents. Aptly named, very classy.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    It's funny you should ask because I sort of fell into them! I had purchased a lot of pipes to clean up and sell and a Kaywoodie Regent was one of them. The stem was SO oxidized but I got to sanding on it, and sanding on it, and sanding on it. Finally I called one of my friends who is also a pipe refurbisher and asked him if he had ever seen a stem so oxidized that it had orange/red streaks. Then I texted him a picture. He said, "That's not oxidation, that's a cumberland stem!" Then he explained what that meant and I became hooked on cumberland stems! To my knowledge, the Kaywoodie Regent line is the only Kaywoodie line that features the cumberland. I just found them so interesting, especially since they were only made 1963-1972. So now I'm trying to collect all of the shapes! I also do not remove the stingers. I prefer to find them with the stinger still in tact but beggers can't be choosers when they are on this sort of hunt!
